Custom Splash Screen GPSMap 478.

I was wondering if anyone has had any success using xImage and uploading a custom splash screen to the 478? I tried a couple of times and kept getting a compatibility error.

It's worked fine for me, but remember , your image has to be the exact size and format or it will not work. Use xImage to download a screen shot from the unit and use that as a template for format and size. Don't forget they have to be .bmp files.

I made it a .bmp file, and resized the image to 480x320 like the other one was, but for some reason it didn't like something about the image I was using. I guess I'll have to keep trying.

Check the color depth and color palate of a downloaded screenshot. I bet the problem is there.

UPDATE: Okay, I have tried to edit images with MS Paint, PhotoDraw, Adobe PhotoShop (which I do NOT know how to use) and I cannot get anything to transfer to the 478, EXCEPT for a black background only, it transferred just fine....figures.

So, is there anyone that has had some success creating a Splash Screen with any of the above mentioned programs? And, if so, could you list the specific properties of that image so I could attempt to duplicate that with the image I am trying to send?

Thank you.
